drank Pu-Erh Mao Cha by MEM Tea Imports
23 tasting notes

Nice, full leaves with minimal breakage; signs of decent storage and transport for a longer leaf pu erh. Liquor smells and tastes of gourds, wet wood, limes, with a back end of floral sweetness way at the rear of the palette. A thin bodied tea but with plenty of character, young but promising, smooth with a minimal but pleasant dryness. Flavors expand through middle rounds, neither waning nor growing, just changing. Late steepings get interesting, complex ‘green’ flavors.

Flavors: Earth, Green Wood, Hay, Moss, Resin, Sambuca, Yeast

Flavors. Must. Find. New. Flavors. Tea is relatively new for me, so I am still in the training wheel stages but so far, I am loving it. I am well versed in medicinal herbs and my pallet likes to be challenged.

I work in the natural products industry but my education and background is in photography (BFA from MassArt.) Because of my job I am connected loosely (or on occasion directly connected) to many artisan tea companies including Mem Tea Imports out of Boston, Rishi Tea, Pukka Herbs, Man Cha Teas, Imports through Mountain Rose Herbs, Aiya Matcha, Jade Leaf, Numi Tea, Organic India, Gaia Herbs, and more.
